The purpose of Bulloch County Schools’ Career Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) program is to prepare students for successful careers and build an educated, skilled, and efficient workforce for economic growth in Bulloch County.

The system’s career clusters, career pathways and student technical organizations are the core of CTAE. The classroom instruction and student-led chapters of national technical organizations help the school system leverage partnerships with local businesses, industries, and institutes of higher learning. This helps our youth explore options, learn new skills, and apply those skills in their careers.
